Random Thursday: This Year I'm Looking Forward To...

You guys probably know me well enough already to know that I suck at remembering to post on time but I feel like I have to say something about it. So yeah, I'm sorry. I suck lately.

Moving on. 

Oh man, there's a ton I'm looking forward to this year. There's something about the New Year that makes everything seem possible, even if it's really not. Whatever, a girl can totally dream. 

1. Hopefully getting my financial shit in order.
I've seriously slacked on this the last year. Our savings are nonexistent, credit cards are maxed beyond max and we're pretty much living paycheck to paycheck. This is not fun & needs to stop ASAP.

2. Going on a road trip that isn't to see family,
Rusty & I have already talked about this and the fact we only take a road trip to visit his family is bullshit. So we've (I've) decided we're taking a trip to either Arizona, Nevada or Northern CA to see weird shit that doesn't cost a lot of money. You know, cause of #1 up there.

3. Possibly seeing my best pal, Em.
With any luck her hubs will have some sort of work thing in SoCal or nearby and I'll be able to spend some very needed time with her. Last year we met up in Vegas around my Bday and were supposed to meet up in San Fran but didn't cause some emergency stuff came up on my end. Wuah wuah wuah. I cried. Luckily, she's beyond awesome & made sure I somehow made the trip anyway. 

The girl actually drew my twitter Avi & snapped photos of "me" at various locations w/her, haha. I tell ya, she's the fucking best!

4. Getting my ass to the gym at least 2x a week
Don't laugh, 2x a week is way fucking better than the NO days a week I'm doing now. At 30 I've started to realize that nothing on this body is getting better, just more saggy. Oh 24 year old boobies and butt how I miss you.

5. Hopefully having offspring
Enough said. Now if you don't mind, go light a candle or pray or wish or send good preggo vibes my way. For real though cause my lady bits aren't really working with me on this as of late.

6. Spending more quality time with these two scruffy's

I know it's only hours from being Friday (or already is for you east-coast peeps) but go against the grain this year and play along with us even if it's not Thursday anymore. Come on, you know you want to.

Next week's topic: Books I Want To Read In 2014...


  1. Wait, did I write this?
    I am trying, ever so desperately, to save money. That whole saving money in a jar by adding money to it per week...yup doing that.

    And the whole gym part - not laughing here. Just remember, you're lapping everyone that's sitting on the couch. *this girl right here, ahem*

    Sending baby vibes your way. Cause seriously, you guys would make adorable babies.

    Here's to 2014!

  2. Aww, can't wait to see your baby. :) Sending good vibes!
    And I hope you will be able to meet Em!

  3. Oh man, I SO hear ya with the money stuff. It's so difficult being poor *sniff*. You'll figure it out, you always do! I just hope it doesn't involve too much OT. Cos I miss ya when you're working 24/7! Also just for the record, you're the fuckin' best. Seriously.

  4. Have you seen the thing on Facebook? The 52 week saving challenge? Well I've started that. It's kind of easy now, but I know by the end of the year it's going to get harder. BUT, if I follow it, I'll have like $1300 in savings. Matt and I are both doing it, so double that if we actually stick to it!

  5. I can relate to so much of this. Sending you good baby making vibes!!

  6. I hope that those goals are off to a great start this year! And I'm sorry I've been so MIA. I'll have to link up with you this Thursday :)


I love comments!
